Thanks, hopefully all will go smoothly.  I'll let everyone know if the hooks cause any problems.

Regarding scissors, blade pendants and other cutting things - very simple fix.  You just bite the yarn.  Or am I the only one in the world who does that?  I've never cut yarn or thread since I first started crocheting.
will you take me to gang practice? yis?

Okay. I made it back into the States with a small steel hook, having picked up a bunch of awesome doily patterns in Israel.  At this point, after being scanned without problems in both directions for flights through Israel, Madrid and New York, I'd say that while security is tighter than ever in all those spots, most airport security people aren't worried about crochet hooks.  Seems like this is no longer a problem.

they usually don't say anything, especially when they see the project that goes with it (ie yarn/thread etc).

are Balene II hooks made of whale parts? cos they kinda seem like they are

Nope, plastic.  The original Balene hooks were made from whale baleen.  They don't make those anymore.  yay whales!
